What a big boy!

Wow- it has been almost a month since I published a post. Not cool. Ok, maybe cool given that I am highly sleep deprived- but I still hoped to do better.

I think part of what has kept me from posting is really having a grasp on what to say. Now, mind you, I can go on and on about my little boy. But it feels funny to do so given that I started this blog as a pregnant infertile. Now I am writing as a...mom. Whoa. I'm not so sure that I want to be a mommy-blogger, but I'm not so much an infertile blogger any more, and I am most decidedly not pregnant. So, folks, this will be a bit of a miscellaneous bin of posts until I get my act together. And even then, I might keep it pretty random.

However, the events of the day rotate around Gabriel, so here comes the mommy stuff...

Gabe had a checkup today with the pediatric cardiologist (I never posted on this, but they found a small hole in his heart shortly after birth). The hole is still very very small and will either close by the time he is one or stay open and not cause a problem. But we still get to visit the cardiologist periodically. He got a good report today- hole is still there and still small. The chest X-rays looks great. Come back in six months. Okee, dokee.

The best part was that we got a weight check (What is up with no doctor's visits at three months? I wanna know his weight, dammit!). He is now weighing in at 11lb and measures 24.5 inches. That is an increase of 2 pounds and 3 inches in just a month. I love it! My little boy is growing up...

Stay tuned for the miscellany!
